7. Content Created By Members

The views expressed in directly posted information from Members of the Munisiacs site are those of the individual Member and not those of Munisiacs or its ISPs.

i. Members are asked not to contribute information which is abusive, racist, obscene, defamatory or the content of which is otherwise undesirable, illegal or in breach of any person’s rights. Munisiacs reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to remove any such information at any time and without notice to any Member. Bona fide requests to remove defamatory content will be honoured, although we can give no guarantee to the time scale.

ii. As this is a family-orientated site, Munisiacs will, at its sole discretion, remove any bad language or explicit adult-orientated words or pictures in posted material, and may terminate your account without notice to you. This also applies to MP3 song titles containing explicit words, and MP3 tracks posted that contain explicit lyrics that have not been marked as such.

iii. Members may not post material that has been designed to distort search engine page rankings. In particular, Members may not employ word repetition techniques, or excessive use of superlatives (such as “A1”, “AAA”, “1st”, “best”, etc). Such material may be removed by Munisiacs without notice to the Member. In such cases, membership may be cancelled without notice to any Member, at the sole discretion of Munisiacs.

iv. Members may not post material that distorts any page, including, but not limited to: width of the page, width of column sections, width of table columns. Such material may be removed by Munisiacs without notice to the Member. In such cases, membership may be cancelled without notice to any Member, at the sole discretion of Munisiacs.

v. Members may not post any gig that is not confirmed, either in writing, by email or verbally, with the other party (band/artist or venue). If the Munisiacs Editors find any evidence of false postings, the Member’s membership will be terminated without notice.

vi. MP3s posted on this site may be subject to copyright restrictions. If you do not own the copyright to songs posted on this site (e.g. “cover” versions or “covers” of existing songs), you MUST select the correct “Licensing category” for the track when you post it onto this site. Failure to correctly identify such tracks, at any time, means that we cannot correctly identify licensed material to the relevant collecting body (such as PRS for Music). In such cases of deliberate mis-categorisation, your MP3s may be removed from this site, and your membership may be terminated by us without notice to you.  You will also be liable for any subsequent costs related to the incorrect labelling.

vii. Pictures and photos posted on this site may be subject to copyright restrictions. If you do not own the copyright, or have written permission from the copyright holder to such pictures and photos, you must not post them onto this site. If you do post copyrighted pictures or photos without the copyright holder’s permission, we will remove them from this site without notice, and your membership may be terminated by us without notice to you.

viii. Pages created by Members on Munisiacs provide information to the public. If Munisiacs determines that any page should be deleted, amended, or re-assigned to a different Member, it may do so without notice to any Member. In cases of contention, where two or more parties claim “responsibility” for the same page, Munisiacs may attempt to resolve ownership by emailing the parties concerned. If no agreement can be reached, or if no response can be obtained from one or more parties, Munisiacs reserves the right to delete, amend or re-assign pages as it sees fit, and without notice to any Members involved. However, Munisiacs gives no guarantee to any Member that they will be consulted before pages are deleted, amended or re-assigned.

ix. Members are responsible for adding and maintaining correct gig information, including, but not limited to: gig date, gig time, and entrance fee. If any Member persistently posts inaccurate gig information, Munisiacs reserves the right to remove these gigs from the site, and to terminate the Member’s membership without notice.

 

8. Automatic clean-up system
